Update time! I could not get the the top card to stop hitting 80 degrees in intensive games with the limited airflow of the air 240 case. I also had a problem where the motherboard wouldn't power one of my case fans after waking from sleep. I I have an unused replacement from gigabyte, but am going in a different direction with this build. So I am rebuilding in the enthoo luxe and will be posting pictures soon. Whatever I don't use will be for sale. Contact me of you are interested at email@example.com. I will ship anywhere in the USA.
Had to shim the backplate of the h80i to get good contact with the IHS of the processor, and modify the voltages to get the i7 to run properly. For some reason intel/gigabyte was supplying way too much voltage to the processor stock. Like so much it would instantly shut off if i tried running the avx2 instruction set. Got that handled, painted the fan shrouds on the gpu's and replaced the thermal compound on the h80i and the gpu's with tuniq, and used corsair link to tie different fan speeds to specific component temperatures. Runs like a champ now!
